Big Data Revealed


Big Data Revealed

A New Research Report from The Information Difference – December 2013

The Information Difference survey, “Big Data Revealed”, was conducted over the Internet during the period October to November 2013. Although Big Data has recently received wide press attention, there is still surprisingly little concrete information available regarding the state of Big Data initiatives in business. We believed the time was ripe to survey this area in depth. In particular, we wanted to put hard numbers around some questions including:

How many companies have actually implemented Big Data technologies, and in what areas?
How much money and effort are organizations investing in it?
Which parts of the business are driving Big Data investments?
What benefits are they seeing?
Which data volumes are being handled?

A total of 178 respondents worldwide took the survey. 34% were from North America (including Canada), 43% from Europe and the remainder (22%) from the rest of the world.

The report has 32 pages.
